A Week in Lipsticks


It’s a brand new week! I’m not particularly fond on Mondays. Mondays give me that hang over feeling when I just want to stay in bed and sleep a little longer. Haha. Anyway, since it’s a start of a brand new week, I thought I’d start the ball rolling on a brand new series on this blog called “A Week in Lipsticks”. I have a lot of lipsticks and to be completely honest, I have not finished up a tube of lipstick in my entire life! So to utilize my lipstick stash, I plan to use a different lipstick everyday, 7 days of the week.

This new series is also quite special as I will be kicking it off with a collaboration with fellow lipstick lover Keith. You can check her out on Instagram (@MakeupKeith) where she will be posting the lipsticks that she will be wearing daily for the whole of next week.

In this post, I will be showing you the lipsticks that I have handpicked for me to wear from Monday to Sunday of next week. But, please do check out my Instagram  (@candidlyghia) as I will also be posting pictures of me wearing these lipsticks!


Monday – Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie in The Morning After

I have quite the collection of Happy Skin lippies but The Morning After remains to be my favorite shade! It’s the perfect pinkish nude shade! I was sad that this came out a few years back as a limited edition shade, however, Happy Skin will be releasing a matte version of this soon! I’m super excited for that!

Tuesday – Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lipstick in Touch of Spice

Another beautiful nude shade with a hint of brown. I love the quality of the Maybelline matte lipsticks – their very pigmented, matte but not drying and very long-lasting.

Wednesday – Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Mocha-licious

I also love the Wet N Wild Megalast Lipsticks! They’re very affordable and they last all day long! Mocha-licious is my favorite shade because it’s a nude color that’s very bold at the same time!

Thursday – MAC Lipstick in Taupe

Taupe is definitely my favorite lipstick from MAC. The reason why I don’t use my other lipsticks often is because I always go back to my ride or die lipsticks like Taupe. This lipcolor is just awesome! It’s the perfect browny nude shade!

Friday – Colourpop Lippie Stix in Lady

Colourpop Lippie Stix’ are amazing! I only have 2 matte shades in my collection and Lady is one of them. It’s such a dark, vampy color that would look great on darker skin tones.

Saturday – Sleek True Color Lipstick in Smoulder

I love the name of this lipstick as it reminds me of Ian Somerhalder! Haha. The finish of this lipstick is a bit shiny but it surprises me how opaque and long-lasting this is! The shade of this lipstick is a dark, plumy brown color.

Sunday – NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned

This is a new addition to my lipstick collection and I’m in love with it! If you can’t already tell from my lipstick picks for the other days, I love lipsticks with a matte finish! However, Damned is quite different from my other picks as this is a deep berry/wine shade. My other picks have a brown undertone to them which I have been loving recently. But, I still love a good berry shade because you just can’t go wrong with that!

Please do check out my Instagram and Keith’s Instagram from Monday to Sunday this week for daily posts of our lipstick picks for the week!
